Pinchos @ Changkat Bukit Bintang

Click here for previous entry on Pinchos (February 10).
When Pinchos first opened early this year, we wondered whether it would hit big or fold up within 12 months. The outcome is clear now: it's a palpable hit!

Jamon Iberico De Bellota. The highest grade of Iberico ham, produced from acorn-eating free-range pigs that roam Spain's oak forests. Rich-tasting, smooth and fatty.

Pinchos de Queso Fundido (gratinated Spanish cheese with piquillo peppers and anchovies). A melt-in-the-mouth, savoury pleasure.

Grilled prawns wrapped with Serrano ham. Land and sea come together in perfect harmony.

Dates and almonds wrapped with pan-fried bacon. A three-layered treat that provides a terrific mix of tastes and textures; the first sensation is that of the succulent, salty bacon, followed by the soft, sweet date, and finally, the nutty, crunchy almond.

Rabbit & seafood paella. A hearty portion that's meant for two but could easily feed four. Bursting with prawns, mussels, squid and rabbit meat.

Valencia Smile (cava, peach brandy, orange) & Pinchos Cava (cava, poncho caballero).
